Quick hands-on with Mario & Sonic 2012 Olympic Games

Mario, Sonic and all their respective friends and enemies are back again in the mini-game collection based on the Olympic Games. There will be around 30 new events in the package plus some returning events from Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Sega showed off three new Olympic events which were cannoning, badminton and show jumping. Yes, it is pretty ridiculous watching Bowser race around on a horse. 

As for the dream events, only dream discus and dream long jump were playable and both were pretty fun. Dream discus sees all the characters racing on flying discuses and collecting as many coins before they reach the finish line. Dream long jump sees the players running through a course until they're the last surviving player.

These dream games are a lot like Mario Party or New Super Mario Bros. as all four players will be playing at once and everyone can attack each other in order to gain the upper hand. The dream games also take place on stages from past Sonic and Mario games. Dream discus took place in a level from Sonic Adventure and dream long jump took place on a cute little Yoshi's Island stage.

Really, there's not much to say. If you're a fan of these type of mini-game collections and enjoyed the previous Olympic Games, then you already know if you'll be picking this up when it's released later this year for the Wii and 3DS. Also, Sega has yet to provide any assets for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games so here's the two in furry outfits. Yup.
